BPMA Activity Highlights 2019/20 BPMA informs AGM of recent activities & achievements

BPMA Members Support COVID-19 Fight Back During these quite extraordinary times, the likes of which none of us have seen before, and amidst the worry and difficulties faced by families and businesses across the world, we are witnessing some remarkable enterprise, generosity and selfless commitment.

The BPMA held its Annual General Meeting at the Wychwood Park Hotel in Cheshire on 14th November, where presentations were given on another truly successful year of operation for the Association. Over the past twelve months, the overall BPMA membership had risen to 88 companies – the highest ever.

National governments, regional authorities, emergency services, health and social care providers, along with all facets of essential production and distribution are showing exceptional resilience in meeting these unparalleled challenges.

207 circulars have been sent out to all association contacts, detailing the output from the Technical, Standards, Marketing and Council meetings, along with updates on legislation from Europe and around the world. Further regular updates on the implications of Brexit for UK industry have also been distributed via the BPMA’s membership of EURIS (European Union Relationship & Industrial Strategy) Taskforce.

Without exception, all those working in these sectors are to be applauded for their unwavering efforts in helping to fight the pandemic, save lives and maintain the flow of vital goods and services, as best they can.

A presentation from Terry Boniface of BEIS (UK Government Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy) gave an update and general overview of the current ‘state of play’ within his sphere of activity. Challenging questions from the floor were handled with both insight and good humour. A presentation from Jeremy Leonard and Oxford Economics gave details of improvements made to 2019’s World Pump Report and the continuing improvements that will be made to the 2020 Report.

The commercial impact of Coronavirus for many businesses, large and small, will be considerable, so as a contrast to the somewhat gloomy offerings presented by the broadcast media, it is good to highlight some positive news.

This excellent resource is given free to all BPMA members as part of their annual membership fee, and now comes with ‘Power BI’, a powerful tool that enables users to drill down into the information and extract specific figures on pump type, sectors and by country and region. ■

Many BPMA member companies supply products and equipment into what we all now appreciate as being essential services, from food & drink processing to water supply and utilities, from pharmaceuticals to medical equipment. One such company is Bristol based Apex Pumps, who recently received an enquiry from a well-known chemical company for an ATEX certified pump, required to handle ethanol, a key component in hand sanitizer.

The leading supplier of hydronic solutions

The requirement was to help increase production of hand sanitizer for use across the NHS and the wider UK market. The pump set was delivered within 5 days, having been designed and built at the company’s production facility in the UK. Similar enquiries are being received from across the world, and Apex Pumps is now fast tracking production of any pumps destined for the NHS or for any processes related to the worldwide fight against COVID 19.

Altecnic, chosen by trade merchants, plumbing and heating engineers, specifiers and original equipment manufacturers for over 30 years. We have the industry’s leading expertise and new product development, proudly supported by dedicated technical and customer service teams.

Grundfos is another BPMA member who is playing a significant part in addressing this unprecedented health crisis. As an organisation that readily understands its responsibility to protect its staff, its customers, as well as the wider communities across its entire operational landscape, it recognises and acknowledges the indomitability of the human spirit, which has been brought into sharp focus by this silent killer. As such, and in this, its 75th Anniversary Year, the Poul Due Jensen Foundation (the Grundfos Foundation) has recently elected to expand its normal £16m donation level and remit, to a staggering £25m, allowing it to pledge some £9m specifically to support research into COVID-19. It remains unclear as to when we might be completely free of this deadly virus, but if we all share the burden and work together, we will survive these difficult times and come through the other side. It is up to each of us, either as individuals or commercial entities, to make whatever contribution we can, in whatever way. Of course, there are other pump companies helping to maintain key services at this time, and BPMA is honoured to have such support and engagement within its membership. Information on the BPMA, or how its members are supporting and servicing the needs of those sectors actively engaged in addressing the impact of Coronavirus, contact Steve Smith on +44 (0)121 601 6691. ■

JIB Recommends BPMA Training for Pump Installation and Maintenance Fitters

Commenting on the recommendation, Gary Wilde, Technical Services Manager at the BPMA said, “It is very pleasing for us to have two of our training courses endorsed by such a respected organisation, and to know that those installing or maintaining pumps with the building environment are being directed our way for their skills development.”

The British Pump Manufacturer’s Association (BPMA) is delighted to have two of its E-Learning Training Courses endorsed by the Joint Industry Board for Plumbing Mechanical Engineering Services in England and Wales.

He added, “We look forward to training many more pump installation and maintenance fitters within the construction industry over the coming years.”

JIB-PMES is an independent and neutral ‘not for profit’ organisation, which partners the CSCS Registration Scheme, a regulator and a service provider for employers and employees within the building industry.

For further information on any of the BPMA Training Courses, please contact Steve Smith on +44 (0)121 601 6691 or by email at s.smith@bpma.org.uk ■

Participation in the activities and benefit schemes of the JIB for Plumbing Mechanical Engineering Services is open to: •

Members of the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC).

Members of the Unite the Union (Unite).

Members of National Federation of Builders (NFB) who employ operative plumbers and/or apprentice plumbers.

Employers of operative plumbers and/or apprentice plumbers, who are not in membership with the APHC or the NFB.

BPMA launches Pump Engineering Forum This year BPMA announced the launch of a brand-new standalone Pump Engineering Forum. Aimed at Plant, Process and Maintenance Engineers, Consultants and Buyers within end-user industries, along with pump manufacturers and distributors around the world, this dedicated online forum will build into a comprehensive repository of pump selection, installation, and application information.

The aim is to encourage information transfer, engineering discussion and collaboration, improved communication and to help develop a highly informed group of pump users across the industry. With engagement from both pump users and pump manufacturers & suppliers, it will become the ‘go-to forum’ for pump related problem solving, including pump system design & delivery, mechanical & electrical installations, pump selection, correct sizing, improved energy efficiency and optimised operation. This platform will permit anyone to ask questions on any problems that they may be experiencing and allow the online community to help address those queries. Unlike other forums in which the same questions seem to be raised repeatedly, the BPMA forum has structured folders where previously posted questions and their respective answers can be archived and so be readily accessed.

As a CSCS scheme partner, JIB-PEMS provides Health & Safety Registration SmartCards (or Blue Cards as they are more commonly known) to operatives employed in plumbing and mechanical engineering services and related sectors.

It also allows suppliers and manufacturers to upload details of the equipment or services they supply and offer, again under appropriate classifications. Other features include relevant information on UK/European/International Standards, Employment Matters, Conferences, Tradeshows, News and Publications.

There are a wide range of disciplines and occupations covered by the scheme, but for those whose work includes the installation, servicing and maintenance of pumps, the registration classification for the appropriate Blue Card is ‘Pump Installation & Maintenance Fitter’.

Registration has been configured to be as simple a process as possible and once completed, users will have access to the full spectrum of features. The weblink is: https://forum.bpma.org.uk/

However, as there is no recognised National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) or Vocational Qualification (VQ) which specifically covers this job role, the qualification requirements for this occupation covers a range of third-party training courses.

Should you require any further information regarding the BPMA, or its new online Pump Engineering Forum, please contact Gary Wilde on +44 (0)121 601 6692 or visit the website at www.bpma.org.uk. ■

The two BPMA courses recommended for completion are: •

Opinion Piece – Brexit Steve Schofield, Director & CEO of the British Pump Manufacturers’ Association, offers a viewpoint on the key topic of regulatory alignment.

In recent weeks the Prime Minister Rt Hon Boris Johnson and the previous Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid have both made statements on broadcast news and in the national press that Regulatory Alignment would be off the discussion table.

The UK left the European Union on 31st January of this year and in accordance with that arrangement has now entered a transition period that will last until 31st December 2020. During this period EU law will apply in the UK and according to the Government, this transition period will not be extended. As such, from 1st January 2021 the UK will regain regulatory control over those areas previously governed by the EU.

So, what does all this mean? In the context of Brexit, regulatory alignment refers to the degree to which UK and EU rules governing the trade in goods and services will be the same, or similar, in future. There is disagreement about what the term means precisely, as there are different degrees of alignment. Previously when a piece of law (Directive / Regulation) was passed in Brussels it would subsequently need to be passed by the UK Government and have Statutory Instruments (SIs) created. SIs are a form of legislation which allow the provisions of an Act of Parliament to be subsequently brought into force or altered without Parliament having to pass a new Act.

The UK Government’s Brexit deal still leaves a huge number of unanswered questions on the detail of the country’s preferred future relationship with the EU. While we know it will be based on a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) approach, this could still mean many different things. There has been a lot of work done within various Government departments but much of this was undertaken under Theresa May’s administration and often without any central coordination or direction. This means that a great deal of it may not in the end have much bearing on reality or could even conflict with the work other departments have already done. There urgently needs to be central political direction and decisions on the detail of the future relationship and the overarching strategy for the next phase – this should all then be turned into legal text as soon as possible.

In layman’s terms, it is taking EU law and making it into UK law. During this process the UK could strengthen the requirements of the law but not reduce them. Over the duration the UK’s membership of the EU, there have been thousands of pieces of legislation covering a multitude of topics relating to all business and manufacturing sectors, and all aspects of living and working in Europe. For the UK Government to say it will not be aligned to any of these rules is a very bold statement. It is believed that the UK Government will initially pick and choose which are appropriate for now before it begins the task of rewriting or amending any existing laws. Our current understanding is legislation covering the likes of Machinery, ATEX, Low voltage etc will be maintained. However, existing energy and environmental legislation will be reviewed, and possibly revised, with future legislation being assessed and possibly ignored.

So far, the focus has been on the FTA itself, particularly from the media. But the future relationship goes far beyond that and includes important issues such as: internal and external security co-operation; data protection and sharing; aviation; road haulage; energy; science and innovation and of course manufacturing.

If regulatory alignment is dropped by the UK Government, it could possibly affect our relationship with CENCENELEC. To explain further, CEN-CENELEC are used to write mechanical and electrical standards that can be aligned to legislation and thereby offer conformity. Questions are now being asked within CENCENELEC on the legality of the BSI (British Standards Institute) remaining a member. It is understood that this will be reviewed at the end of 2021. The jury is still out on many subjects with decisions relying on how the future relationship with the EU will evolve, but I am sure there will be many further surprises in the coming months. ■ For further information please contact the author, Steve Schofield at the BPMA on +44 (0)121 601 6350 or by email at s.schofield@bpma.org.uk

Women Break the Glass Ceiling in Pump Engineering and Associated Trades By: Gary Wilde of the BPMA Gary Wilde has prepared a report on the changing and growing role of women in the pump industry. The full report is available from the BPMA, but here is a summary of it.

We already have a great pool of talent within our industry, but the question is how do we attract more? We asked our members that employed women if they would be interested in doing a survey and we were delighted with the response. A total of 15 questions were asked of 18 women working in the industry.

Engineering is dominated by men, but there is a considerable shortage of appropriately skilled workers in the engineering sector. Women are a minority, but the number is slowly growing. The top drivers of the skills gap reported by employers include strong competition for skilled candidates, a shortage of applicants with appropriate qualifications and a lack of awareness among young people of the educational routes into engineering occupations.

Our survey In answer to the question “Why did you choose to go into engineering?” Respondents mentioned a fascination with “How things work”, as well as the influence of science teachers and a relative already working in engineering. A typical response comes from Sinéad Codd of Sulzer Pumps “My love of Maths and Physics in school made Engineering an obvious choice for me” When asked why they had gone into the pump industry in particular, the availability of training schemes and apprenticeships was an important response. Nancy Ashburn of Watson-Marlow says “I entered the pump industry in my gap year, looking for work experience and it was actually through the pump industry that I gained my interest in engineering.” We need more woman All the respondents thought it important that many more women should be involved in engineering in the future. Dounia Bakira of AES Seal summed it up like this “Everybody should be given an opportunity to fulfil their potential, which is one of the reasons why it is so vital that Dounia Bakira of AES Seal women are given equal opportunities. Engineers as problem solvers, finding solutions to real world problems to make lives easier”.

Charlotte Marsh of Eriks UK

Engineering has a key role in driving economic growth and productivity, generating £1.2 trillion in 2018. The number of women in the UK engineering sector is 416,084, that is around 12.37% of all engineers. It is estimated that the UK pump and associated trades are worth approx. over £1billion pa. Attracting more female engineers & retaining those that come into the industry is vital for financial stability and economic growth. There’s positive news from the sector when it comes to pay parity, too. The gender pay gap for engineering sector occupations is 18.7% – more than double the UK’s average pay gap of 8.6% – but among graduates, the pay gap for first salaries is just 1.19%. As more women enter the sector, I think we will see the pay gap at director level closing. Ongoing activism and pressure from young women mean it is likely to reduce quite dramatically, I suspect, over the next 10 years. To continue to encourage women to enter the field of engineering, schools, universities, companies, and professional organizations alike need to leverage several valuable resources. By creating an atmosphere that is conducive to all kinds of engineers, the industry will become stronger as a whole and play a role in inspiring the next generation.

Kathryn Poke of Armstrong

Our panel’s advice What advice would our panel give to a woman thinking of starting a career in engineering? Be persistent, you can do it sums up the feeling of most. Mandy Bailey of NOV puts it like this “Do your research & find out as much as you can about the field you want to work in & don’t give up. Work twice as hard as any man to be taken seriously”.

I know that one way is allowing women engineers within our industry be able to join the voluntary Stem Ambassadors programme which is about engaging and enthusing young people giving something back to education and the wider community which will also develop your own skills for yourself and the Company you work for. The BPMA would actively work along other organisations or partners to address the engineering skills and diversity challenges within our industry.

Whether or not women and girls are being encouraged at school to follow an engineering career is questionable in the minds of our respondents. Certainly, things are better than they were, but more is needed as Kathryn Poke of Armstrong says: “Things have changed a lot since I was at school. Females weren’t really encouraged to do craft, design & technology or hands on lessons. I think schools these days do a lot more”.

Ablah Williams of Triark

What are the benefits and drawbacks of working in engineering for women? Respondents certainly find the work interesting, challenging and stimulating. However, Ablah Williams of Triark says “The world is ever changing and evolving; yet attitudes are still quite old fashioned at times. It can be challenging to work in engineering, some days, as a woman.”


Wo m e n B re a k t h e G l a s s C e i l i n g i n E n g i n e e r i n g Equal opportunities?

The future

In answer to the question “are there equal opportunities for women”? Again, things are much better than they were, but there is still plenty to do. Shirley Simpson of Tomlinson Hall sums it up “I personally feel much more needs to be done. I still experience, after over 25 years in the business, some older customers will ask to speak to “someone technical” when I take a call!”

There’s so much embedded in our culture saying engineering isn’t for girls, and people still think of engineers as the men who fix your washing machine, not the people at the forefront of designing creative solutions to the world’s problems. Those messages dissuade girls from studying subjects required for engineering careers. Among girls aged 11-14, almost half (46.4%) would consider a career in engineering, compared with 70.3% of boys. But this drops to 25.4% of girls aged 16-18, compared with 51.9% of boys. At A-level, girls make up just 22% of physics students.

Support Encouragingly, respondents felt they were well supported with the tools & training they needed, to grow their careers. This is an excellent sign for the development of women within the industry. Many companies do offer career development plans for their employees as Stephanie Allchurch of Altecnic Ltd says “We are set individual objectives on an annual basis, therefore, if there is a particular field or area which is of interest we can set an objective to work out how the business can support and nurture this”.

Yet, girls outperform boys in engineering fields of study. In all Stem A-levels, except chemistry, more girls get A*-C grades than boys, and this pattern continues at degree level. Almost 80% of female engineering students will get a first or an upper second-class degree, compared with 74.6% of male students. Engineering involves the whole population and has an effect on the lives of every citizen, whether it is biomedical engineering when you have a surgical procedure, or electrical engineering when You are using the computer or watching television. Because engineering reaches so far into the lives of all of us, we need it to better represent society as a whole. Therefore, the sector needs greater diversity. The signs are good and diversity is being achieved.

Most also feel that they are appreciated and acknowledged for their contributions at work. Holly Winter says “Triark Pumps has always made me feel as though my opinions and contributions are Stephanie Allchurch of Altecnic Ltd valued and considered and that the work I do, on a daily basis, is appreciated no matter what it is. I am, and have always been, treated as a valued member on a hardworking team”. Confirming this, most feel that they receive excellent support and guidance from colleagues & management.

Nonetheless, sustained efforts to persuade women to pursue engineering careers are yielding fruit, albeit slowly. When WES started in 1919, there were no female engineers, and 50 years later only half a percent of all engineers in the UK were women. Now, we are beginning to make quite considerable inroads, so it’s an exciting time to join a sector that will change radically over the next 50 years. In 2017, the median basic salary for engineering professionals (engineers, architects, surveyors) was £35,000 for women and £41,545 for men, and this gap widens considerably at director level, with women paid on average £20,000 less than men, according to a 2017 salary survey. There’s positive news from the sector when it comes to pay parity, too. The gender pay gap for engineering sector occupations is 18.7% – more than double the UK’s average pay gap of 8.6% – but among graduates, the pay gap for first salaries is just 1.19%.

Looking to the future where do these women see themselves in 5 years’ time? The answer is, in the industry and progressing and learning. As Jane Delicata of TT Controls comments: “Encouraging the apprentices within the organisation to aim high and strive to be in my seat, or other managerial role, when I retire!”

It’s very exciting that women starting a career in engineering can expect to earn the same as their male counterparts. ■

Attracting more woman into the industry One Anonymous respondent said “Raise women’s salaries in-line with male employees, offer better support for women who do experience problems within engineering companies, be more flexible when women have families and need to take maternity leave, encourage women to better themselves not just settle in current roles.” More generally our panel felt that more information and publicity around women in engineering would encourage girls to look at the possibility, study the science and get involved. As Stephanie Allchurch of Altecnic Ltd said “We need to break down the barriers and take away any stigmas, we need to reeducate people not to think of jobs only being suited to one sex or the other, just because it has traditionally been this way. We live in an evolving world and it’s so important to embrace change.”

BPMA Activity Highlights

BPMA Golf Day How it all began The BPMA Golf day began 20 years ago at the same time as the Pump Industry Awards. At that time the then president of the BPMA Mr Derek Hill wanted to see a Golf Day and an awards evening that would celebrate achievements in Pumping. The Golf day was devised primarily for those small and medium-sized companies who had the enthusiasm for a golf day but did not necessarily the resources to fund their own.

Some venues BPMA have held their Golf day over the years are: •

2004 – The BELFRY

2005, 2008, 2010, 2014 – CELTIC MANOR

2007 – ST PIERRE

2011 – FOREST OF ARDEN

2013 – FOREST PINES

2018 – WYCHWOOD PARK

2019 – OULTON HALL

This year 2020, BPMA are holding their Event at Belton Woods,in Lincolnshire a course we last visited in 2006 The Lakes is a par 72 course and sits at 6776 yards, a challenge to any level of golfer, with water guarding the approaches to many greens, so course management and shot placement is key. BPMA Team, 2013 – Forrest Pines Who is it for The BPMA Golf day is a social and networking event. It encourages team building and helps motivate staff, it is an excellent way for companies to discuss business with clients in a friendly and informal way. While the event attracts some serious golfers it also encourages those who play very little and with the handicap system used teams of mixed abilities can do very well. Where is it held The Golf Day is typically held in May, however, this year due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak will be held later in the year.

BPMA Activity Highlights

Pump Industry Awards – 20 Years of Celebrating Pump Excellence 2020 heralds the 20th anniversary of the BPMA's Pump Industry Awards – two decades of recognising and rewarding excellence throughout the pump sector During that time, the Pump Industry Awards has acknowledged and celebrated some wonderful innovations, challenging applications, impressive skills development, engineering acumen and great business achievement. It has rewarded companies, products, people and projects, all of which have contributed to making the pump industry the success that it is today. Tirelessly supported by the industry's trade organisation, the BPMA, along with our various partners and sponsors, the Gala Awards Dinner has established itself as a highly regarded and well-respected industry event. Richard Harden, BPMA President said, “The 2019 Pump Industry Awards was another huge success and once again provided an excellent forum through which to acknowledge and celebrate business and professional excellence. I very much look forward to building on that success with the 2020 awards programme and would encourage all those operating in this wonderful sector of ours to make this annual awards programme a key part of their commercial and promotional operations going forward” In recognition of its 20 years continuous service to the pump community, the 2020 awards programme will include two brand new categories. The Contribution to Skills & Training Award will be presented to the company, organisation, or individual(s) that can

demonstrate a consistent contribution to the delivery of professional training and skills development within the pump industry. The Rising Star Award will be presented to an employee who has been within the industry for no more than 6 years and who has made a significant contribution to a company and/or the industry, as demonstrated by the individual’s merits, successes, impact on the company, and a colleague or customer endorsement. In total there are nine awards are up this year, as follows: •

BPMA Activity Highlights 2019/20 Working Group Pressure (WGP) for approval), although Orgalime questioned the usefulness of this guideline given that market has adapted to the new rules under the PED 2014/68/EU

European Directives

The latest Working Party Guidelines held a meeting in Brussels on 5 September. The group discussed the status the adopted PED Guidelines (version 5.2), the pending ones as well as four new requests to produce PED Guidelines. For further information the agenda and working documents are available from the secretariat.

INTERNAL MARKET MACHINERY DIRECTIVE Old 98/37/EC New 2006/42/EC The European Commission published on 7 May its Staff Working Document on the Evaluation of the Machinery Directive (MD). The MD is assessed as being fit for purpose in general, continuing to be relevant and to deliver effectively and efficiently the intended benefits for the users of machinery.

As for the Working Group Pressure, the next meeting is tentatively scheduled to take place on 25 November. At the recent Europump meeting the French association tabled a motion that it may be time for pumps to be part of the PED. Other members of Europump totally objected to this. This needs monitoring !!

The feeling within Europump is the current Proposed revision will not affect pump manufacturers.

Within the UK the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has contacted the BPMA with concerns regarding certification of sealant systems for double mechanical seals typically plan 53. They believe some systems are being purchased that do not fully conform to the PED. For more information contact s.schofield@bpma.org.uk Europump Position paper is now being revised to give up to date information.

Last November, the European Commission released an updated version 2.2 of the Guide of Interpretation to the Machinery Directive. It contains a number of clarifications and corrections to the concepts of “safety components” and “partly completed machinery”, and some edits to ensure coherence with the LVD Guide. There are two newly added paragraphs about the machinery control units and safety components, which are considered to be logic units However, the Commission did not retain suggestions for an electronic alternative to the paper format of users’ instruction.

ATEX (EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES) Old 94/9/EC New 2014/34/EU (After 2016)

One area which members need to be aware of is the Harmonised standard EN809, It has been agreed to revise the standard with CEN but not to include ISO. Frank Ennenbach Sulzer & Europump has agreed to be the convenor of the new CEN TC 197 wg.

The Commission has also launched an open call for the selection of members of a new ATEX Expert Group to replace the current Working Group. Further information on the selection procedure, the application form and terms of reference is available here.

European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) Institute for Energy and Transport is also carrying out a study on behalf of DG GROW to assess the impact of a possible extension of the scope of the Machinery, Pressure Equipment and ATEX Directives regarding equipment intended for use in the offshore oil and gas industry. The new Directive 2006/42/EC came into effect as from 29 December 2009. The BPMA have now issued useful information on the requirements of the New Machinery Directive and also captive screws for guards. To comply fully with the new directive members should work to the revised text of standard EN 809 1998 +A1:2009 which was published by BSi February 2010. A preliminary version of the proposed revision of the existing Europump Guideline has now been Circulated (3 pages). This ensures that the pump industry fully understand its obligations.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2019/20 overall performance of the LVD 2014/35/EU against the standard evaluation criteria: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added-value. Some key aspects on which this evaluation may focus relate to: checking possible challenges/risks stemming from digitalisation of electrical equipment; assessing whether the recent increasing number of safeguard clauses and objections to harmonised standards raised by Member States may necessitate a change in the scope of the LVD and/or health and safety requirements; and identifying any possible overlaps with other EU legislation, mainly the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU, the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) 2014/30/EU, and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

From Europump Frank Ennenbach (Sulzer) has been nominated as the pump expert on Atex. Standards situation IEC standards 80079-36 & 37 were published in 2016 and include major changes to the marking and documentation of non- electrical goods such as pumps. Pump manufacturers should start working to these two new standards it will be a legal requirement after 31st October 2019.

Members are required to use the new number as of April 2016.

Europump Standards Commission have revised its Atex Guidelines Parts 1 and 2 according to the new standards and situation (+ IECEx). These guidelines will help members with the new requirements.

At a recent Europump meeting a discussion took place on if domestic pumps should comply to both the Machinery Directive and Low Voltage Directive. Most of these currently work to the EN 60335 series of standards.

Copies of the Atex Guidelines are available from S Schofield at the BPMA

The conclusion was that the Declaration of conformity for these products should include both Directives.

A new list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the Directive 2014/34/EU regarding equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres was published in the Official Journal on 12 October (OJEU 12.10.2018 C 371/1).

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility DIRECTIVE) 89/336/EEC Old 2004/108/EC New 2014/30/EU after2016

The Atex 2014/34/EU Guidelines 2nd edition December 2017 are now available from S. Schofield BPMA upon request.

The latest meeting of the EMC Working Party (WP) took place on 19 September. The European Commission announced that it intends to perform an evaluation of the EMCD in the coming year. The evaluation study is to be launched in December 2019, to be followed by the publication of a public consultation and a stakeholder survey in the first quarter of 2020.

The key changes reflect the alignment with the New Legislative Framework (NFL) and mainly concern: •

definitions (horizontal additions from the NLF)

more detailed information about the obligations of economic operators

more detailed requirements for notified bodies

updated references (presumption of conformity, CE marking)

simplified procedures for market surveillance

taking the contents and model of Declaration of Conformity (DoC) from the NLF

taking validity conditions for EU type-examination certificate from the NLF

practical transitional arrangements given for the DoC and the Directive numbering that needs to be stated (in accordance with the Blue Guide interpretation)

On the situation of the EMC standards assessed by the Harmonised Standards’ (HAS) consultant for the EMCD, it was reported that the HAS consultant carried out thirty-three assessments, out of which only one received a positive assessment. Five had minor non-compliance issues and twenty-seven were considered as non-compliant. CENELEC stated that the HAS consultant report is not an accurate representation of the situation, as the assessments were carried out at various stages of standards’ development. The new directive makes reference to electromagnetic compatibility ‘apparatus’ instead of ‘product’ which was used in directive 2004/108/EC. No substantial changes to the technical provisions have been identified, but in the new text market surveillance procedures are both simplified and clearer. Electro Magnetic Fields Directive (EMFD) Directive 2013/35/EU

LOW VOLTAGE DIRECTIVE Old 2006/95/EC New 2014/35/EU after 2016

On basis of Directive 2014/30/EU on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to electromagnetic compatibility, electrical equipment covered by harmonised standards are presumed to be in conformity with the essential requirements of those standards. In order to follow technical progress, the standardisation organisations CEN, Cenelec and ETSI oversee the drafting, revising and completing of harmonised standards for electromagnetic compatibility.

Publication of the Consultants’ Evaluation study The scope of this evaluation covers the functioning of the LVD including monitoring of the implementation, as well as the operation of the conformity assessment. The study evaluates the degree to which the LVD has achieved its original objectives as regards effectiveness, efficiency, coherence, relevance and EU added value.

In this context, the European Commission Implementing decision (EU) 2019/1326 on the harmonised standards for electromagnetic compatibility was published in the Official Journal, informing on:

A new list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU was published on 14 September 2018 in the Official Journal (OJEU 14.09.2018 C 209/37). The European Commission published the LVD Guidelines on 19 August 2018. The official draft mostly reflects the comments received from the industry. The European Commission published the Evaluation and Fitness Check Roadmap of the Low Voltage Directive on 30 October, inviting stakeholders to provide feedback by 27 November.

Whilst the CPR is not applicable to pumps its focus on the pump industry is becoming more relevant due to work within the Drinking Water Directive.

Concerns on exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) from 5G networks were raised during a European Parliament policy department study presentation on “5G Deployment: State of Play” in the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy on 3 September 2019. The study states that potentially much higher exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation arising from 5G may have an impact on human health. 5G telecommunications technology is currently being rolled-out in Europe. The European Commission 5G Action Plan requests Member States to conduct national risk assessment to identify technological vulnerabilities and legal/market vulnerabilities. The Commission will review the risk assessments in the course of October.

The standardisation body CEN and the construction products sector have agreed to develop a “Smart CE marking” to provide information on product performances in a digital format. This CEN Workshop Agreement has now been published: CWA 17316:2018. It provides a link between the product and its DoP in a digital, machine and human readable format (XML). As a next step, a product-specific approach will be developed to allow the optional use of “Smart CE” by manufacturers. As a reminder the Commission have proposed this new text to remove the existing Directive with regulation. This could affect the pump industry has it is currently believed within Europump that pumps are not part of the Construction Products Directive. The BPMA and Europump will monitor this position closely, unfortunately for now the French have chose to work to the CPR whilst the UK, Germany and Italy are saying pumps are excluded.

Exposure of the general public to electromagnetic fields (EMF) is a recurrent subject in the European Parliament. The impact of radiations emitted by mobile network stations on human health was raised by MEP Biljana Borzan (S&D, Croatia), who asked a written question about the implementation of the Directive 2013/35 on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents in Member States.

Revision of the DRINKING WATER DIRECTIVE 98/83/EC

The new Directive covers all sectors but mainly concerns workers exposed to a level of risk. It incorporates new international exposure limits, based on guidelines of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiations Protection (ICNIRP). The legislation obliges employers to assess the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields and to take the necessary measures to reduce them, for example by replacing equipment or using interlocks or shielding mechanisms.

Inter-institutional negotiations were launched on 7 October, with four rounds of negotiations at the time of writing. The institutions have made progress on issues regarding the ‘riskbased approach’ and the issues of monitoring parametric values. Regarding the issue of materials in contact with drinking water, the European Commission presented on 8 November a nonpaper to the Member States regarding the application of the new Article 10a proposal (available from the secretariat). This document presents an assessment as to how this proposal would work in practice and the projected costs of such an approach. As regards the overall feasibility of the system, by which the Commission would adopt positive lists, it appears feasible but not as proposed by the Council of the EU. The current proposal establishes that these lists should be adopted 4 years after the entry into force. However, the Commission paper finds that this is not feasible, but it may not be necessary either, as the allowed substances are either covered by the Food Contact Materials Regulation (FCM) or are covered by the existing positive lists developed by the 4MS (Netherlands, France, Germany and United Kingdom). Once adopted, the lists must be periodically updated. In terms of responsible agency, it appears that the preferred actor will be the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). However, the legal text should better define the role and obligations of the agency. Furthermore, there should be a high degree of coordination with the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA), to ensure coherence with the risk assessments under the FCM.

The new Directive addresses the short-term direct biophysical effects (e.g. tissue heating, stimulation of muscles, nerves or sensory organs) and indirect biophysical effects (e.g. interference with medical electronic equipment such as cardiac pacemakers). The directive stipulates an obligation for employers to carry out risk assessments and, if necessary, measure or calculate the levels of electromagnetic fields to which workers are exposed. Employers must ensure that the exposure of workers is compliant with a series of exposure limit values regarding thermal and non-thermal effects of electromagnetic fields both on health and senses, take corrective measures if such values are exceeded, and take measures aimed at avoiding or reducing risks to a minimum. Exposure limit values are indicated in the annexes to the directive. The manufacturers and employers organisations insist that many working processes will be disturbed by the application of this physical agents directive, and it may even render the use of some machines or processes impossible e.g. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners, spot and seam welding.

Europump has now completed its work on a Position paper and also a Guideline to assist members in selling their product on drinking water across all member states. This document was circulated to members in June however further copies are available from S Schofield.

Construction Products Regulation (CPR) – Revision Regarding the revision process of the Construction Products Regulation, the European Commission finally published the long-awaited Staff working document (see executive summary) in October 2019. This follows up the evaluation study, originally carried out back-to-back with the impact assessment, as well as other studies and consultations carried out since 2016.

The 4MS – soon to be 5MS with Portugal – published a new document on their website in the summer: a compilation of the positive lists of substances used for organic materials acceptance for contact with drinking water. This spreadsheet is not yet a harmonised list, but clearly shows what is authorised in France, Germany and the Netherlands (the UK does not use such positive lists). An update of the positive list of metallic alloys is still awaited.

The European Construction Sector Observatory (ECSO) – part of DG Growth – has recently published two reports on the digitalisation of the construction sector: ‘Building Information

BPMA Activity Highlights 2019/20 The European Commission have now published the updated list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) on 14 July (C 229/24). The next list of harmonised standards is expected to be published on 15 October. In addition, the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on the RED has been recently updated. It covers key clarifications on the scope and application of the RED, as well as the status of publication of harmonised standards, and how manufacturers can ensure compliance with the RED in the absence of standards.

Directive 2014/53/EU – RED During the LVD Expert Group (EG) meeting of 4 November the Commission informed participants on the state of play of ongoing RED studies: •

the RED Internet of Things (IOT) wearable study is expected to be finalised towards February 2020 and would be presented at the next RED EG meeting in March 2019

the RED upload of software Study is expected to be finalised in June 2020

Dual-use items – Regulation (EC) 428/2009 On 17 October, the European Commission adopted the 2019 annual Delegated Regulation updating the EU dual-use export control list in Annex I of the Dual Use Regulation.This Delegated Regulation brings the dual-use Regulation in line with the decisions taken within the framework of the international non-proliferation regimes and export control arrangements in 2018. The majority of the changes result from amendments agreed in the Wassenaar Arrangement as well as in the Missile Technology Control Regime. The Delegated Regulation will enter into force upon its publication foreseen in the second half of December, provided that the Council and the European Parliament raise no objections within this period.

IMCO debates RED delegated acts On 6 November the European Parliament IMCO group held a legislative scrutiny session on the RED delegated acts. Mr Cozigou, the European Commission’s DG Grow Director responsible for radio equipment, updated the European Parliament Internal Market Committee Members on its preparation of several delegated acts. Most MEPs commented on the delegated act on common chargers for mobile phones. Mr Kolaja (Greens/EFA, CZ) recommended to keep open technologies in mind in the RED software upload delegated act dossier.

At these links you will find the Note Summary of the Proposal and the Delegated Regulation.

The European Commission published a report on the operation and implementation of the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED) on 13 November, in accordance with the Article 47(2).

In addition, on 4 November, the European Commission published the Annual Report on the implementation of the Dual-Use Export Control Regulation.

The report indicates that overall the RED has been operating well since its application date (i.e. 13 June 2016), despite a delay of some Member States’ to notify their transposition measures, and the late citation of harmonised standards under the RED.

At these links you will find the full Report and the Annex. Given the uncertainty on the final outcome of the negotiations between the EU and the UK and a possible “no-deal” scenario, in March the European Parliament Plenary Session and the Council adopted the EC proposal for a Regulation to add the United Kingdom to the list of countries for which a general authorisation to export control dual use items is valid throughout the EU, amending Annex IIa of the Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 on dual-use. With this new Regulation, exporters of dual-use items to the UK will require a Union General export authorisation, which is aimed at facilitating controls on low-risk exports of dual-use items to certain third countries.

The next report on the implementation of the RED is expected to be released in 2023. The latest list of harmonised standards (with 3 new references) in the framework of the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU was published in the Official Journal on 14 September (OJEU 14.09.2018 C 326/114). The European Commission is planning to issue three delegated Acts under Article 3.3 of the RED, on:

Work on the repeal of the Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 of the Union regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering, technical assistance and transit of dual-use items is advancing slowly. After the vote of the EP Plenary Session in January 2018, the Council has not adopted its position yet. This was expected to be adopted on 5 December in order to start the trialogue negotiations on 11 December.

1. A common charger (for all mobile devices) 2. Reconfigurable Radio Systems (including the issue of applying the RED after a product has been placed on the market, to ensure that the conformity of the radio equipment is not affected by the upload of a software/firmware update)

DG Trade has published a Targeted Industry Consultation on draft Internal Compliance Programme guidance for dual-use export controls. The European Commission and EU Member States created a Technical Expert Group to draft the guidance as a non-binding instrument identifying the core elements which are essential for an effective ICP for dual-use export controls.

3. Privacy of toys and smart watches (to address the issue of fraud and privacy in consumer goods). There are 5 new CENELEC harmonised standards, 4 of which aim to cover RED essential requirements in article 3.1(a) on health and safety, and 1 covering RED article 3.1(b) on an adequate level of electromagnetic compatibility. The Radio Equipment Directive superseeds the former RTTI Directive and claimes all products equiped or combined with a device transmitting or receiving signals via „radio waves” to be a RED product.

Exporters of products not listed in the regulation but which could be used for human rights violations have to follow the OECD-based ‘due-diligence’ guidelines. Companies should also be aware of the relaxed import and export restrictions previously applied to Iran.

The situation is unsatisfying and most companies take a pragmatic way forward and follow the well known an established procedure according the RTTI – the predecessor of the RED.

The export authorisations apply to dual-use items as listed in Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 428/2009, non-listed items which may be controlled if their use is intended for biological, chemical or nuclear weapons or ballistic missile weapons programmes and, in exceptional cases, non-listed dual-use items to be controlled if their use goes against public security or human rights values.

All equipment (subject to the RED Directive) combined with the machine is shipped with ist complete Conformity documentation and the machine is declared according macinery directive.

These amendments entered into force on 11 December 2017. As a next step, Member States will have to incorporate them into national law by 12 June 2019.

WEEE AND ROHS DIRECTIVES 2012/19/EU & 2011/65/EU On RoHS, 2011/65/EU

The new RoHS directive came into force as of 2nd January. Monitoring and control equipment will be effective as of 22/7/14. Industrial monitoring and control equipment as of 22/7/17.

RoHS exemptions renewal In parallel to the RoHS evaluation, the European Commission is finalising its project on the review of RoHS methodologies and possible new restriction of substances.

In view of the definition of ‘electrical and electronic equipment’ or ‘EEE’ in the Recast Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2), some pumps may be understood as EEE.

Further to the revision of the methodology to identify and assess substances, the Öko-Institut used this revised manual to evaluate 7 substances. As a reminder, they published 4 draft dossiers on indium phosphide, beryllium and its compounds, nickel sulphate and nickel sulfamate and cobalt salts in September.

After careful study of the Directive 2011/65/EU on RoHS, EUROPUMP and its members come to the conclusion that the following pumps and pump units may fall in scope of this Directive from 2nd of January 2013 on:

In December, the Öko-Institut published the draft assessment on the remaining three substances: Tetrabromobisphenol-A (TBBP-A), Medium Chain Chlorinated Paraffins (MCCPs) and Diantimony trioxide (ATO). The Öko-Institut recommends restricting these flame retardants due to exposure to workers, mainly in EEE waste processing and recycling plants, and also risks to the environment and for consumers. In our industry, MCCPs are mostly used as constituents of PVC insulations for electric cables components, while diantimony trioxide is used plastics for EEE enclosures and TBBP-A is used in the production of epoxy resin.

This means that pumps which were not covered by Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS1) and thus may not comply with the substance restrictions prescribed, but which are now subject to Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2), can still be made available on the market until 22 July 2019.

In short, these amendments clarify the transitional date (22 July 2019), introduce an explicit spare parts exclusion and allow secondary market operations for newly-in-scope EEE (articles 2.2, 4.3 & 4.4). This review also increases the exclusions, notably in broadening the definition of non-road

The Commission has therefore eliminated this requirement but maintains the reporting obligation on the preparation for reuse, as this information is relevant for the calculation of the recovery targets.

NOTE: In view of the current wording of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2), this also means that the distribution / rental channels and stocks will have to be clear of non-conforming pumps on 22 July 2019. However, in view of the serious economic and environmental impact of such clearance, Industry associations together with the European Commission and Member States authorities are trying to find a solution to mitigate such consequences.

In the context of article 8.5 of the WEEE Directive on the proper treatment of WEEE, Member States may set up minimum quality standards for the treatment of WEEE. Furthermore, after the Waste Package was adopted last year, there was no reference to the WEEE treatment standards (EN 50625 series). MEMBERS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT PUMPS ARE INCLUDED IN THE UK AND YOUR COMPANY NEEDS TO BE REGISTERED WITH THE ENVIROMENTAL AGENCY AND WITH A COLLECTION SCHEME

WEEE2 Directive There will be no link to the RoHs directive The European Commission is working on developing an Implementing Decision laying down rules for the calculation, verification and reporting of data and establishing data formats under the WEEE Directive. This decision would establish a format for Member States to report on information on EEE being placed and treated in the market.

The European Commission drafted a format for the registration and reporting of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) as per Article 16.3 of the WEEE Directive. This draft regulation is based on a dedicated study. The draft regulation establishes three formats and frequencies for reporting:

One of the most contentious items of the Commission’s proposal is the calculation methods on the re-use of EEE. Some members would like this data to be reported more generally with other reuse information required under the Waste Framework Directive, while others discussed the reporting under EEE categorisation (with a preference to

placed on the market. Member States did not agree on the frequency reporting due to different national practices: annual vs quarterly reporting. 3. Format for reporting on data related to WEEE collected, treated, recycled and recovered to be performed on an annual basis.

In parallel, on 24 October the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling on the Commission to withdraw its decision on a separate authorisation for chromium trioxide (see here). The Parliament emphasises that authorisations should not be granted unless there are detailed substitution plans, and it is proven that there are no viable alternatives. This shows that strong political pressure from the Parliament is not supportive of broad applications for authorisation of chromium trioxide and that targeted ones have a higher likelihood of success.

The entry into force of this draft implementing regulation is also subject to discussion: January 2019 or January 2020. Regarding next steps, DG Environment will consult other services in the Commission (inter-service consultation). The Implementing Regulation will then be discussed with the Member States at the WEEE Committee meeting in January 2018. The final adoption is envisaged in early 2018. UK WEEE guidance:

As regards lead compounds, 4 substances used in the manufacturing process of batteries remain on the priority list. Although the industry called for granting exemptions specifically for the manufacture of batteries, no exemption has been recommended.

From this link you can get to the Commission’s FAQs which provide additional information, particularly around the exclusions on the move to open scope.

Restriction process The ECHA guidelines on the 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) restriction is now available in all EU languages. The ECHA Committees for Risk Assessment (RAC) and SocioEconomic Analysis (SEAC) both agreed to restrict the uses of N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) on its own or in mixtures in a concentration equal or greater than 0.3 %. The substance may be used in manufacturing settings as an intermediate. A public consultation on SEAC’s opinion is ongoing until 25 November.

CHEMICALS (REACH) Amendment of directives 67/548/EEC &199/45/EC

On registration Member States have approved a Commission proposal to improve the compliance of registration dossiers with EU law. The objective is to raise the target of compliance checks from 5% to 20%. With this change, ECHA foresees to have covered approximately 30% of all registered substances by 2027. This will be supplemented with the work performed by the Enforcement Forum.

UK Withdrawal ECHA continues to provide guidance for companies on how to prepare in the event of a no-deal scenario. Downstream users based in the EU-27 and the European Economic Area (EEA) need to check whether substances that have been registered by UK manufacturers, importers or only representatives have been transferred to the EU-27/EEA. A full list of substances registered only by UK companies can be found on ECHA’s website. Additional advice and guidance can be found on the dedicated website.

Furthermore, ECHA published in October a clarification on the rules for registration of phase-in substances. While the transitional regime under REACH ended on 31 May 2018, certain provisions will still apply until 31 December 2019

Candidate list

EU INTEGRATED POLLUTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL DIRECTIVE 96/61/EC

The Candidate List was updated on 16 July to include 4 new substances: 2-methoxyethyl acetate, Tris (4-nonylphenyl, branched and linear) phosphite (TNPP) with ≥ 0.1% w/w of 4nonylphenol, branched and linear (4-NP), 2,3,3,3-tetrafluoro-2-(heptafluoropropoxy) propionic acid, its salts and its acyl halides (covering any of their individual isomers and combinations thereof) and 4-tert-butylphenol. The Candidate List now has 201 substances. As from the inclusion in the Candidate List, users of the substance need to comply with Article 33 communication obligations (see also the Orgalim note).

Replaced by the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) The Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) implementation still continues. The next Article 13 Forum meeting is scheduled on 14 October 2019. Gathering the European Commission, Member States and stakeholders, the Forum meetings aim to progress on new and revised best available techniques reference documents (so-called ‘BREFs’). The next meeting aims to obtain the Forum’s opinion on the BREF for Surface Treatment using Organic solvents, including preservation of wood and wood products with Chemicals (STS). Then, the BAT conclusions will be submitted to Member States for voting.

As a next step, ECHA has launched a public consultation for 4 new substances to be potentially included in the next update. Of these substances, we would like to highlight perfluorobutane sulfonic acid (PFBS) and its salts. This substance is used as a catalyst in polymer manufacturing, and its related substances are identified in the Annex XV report as being used in metal chrome plating processes. The deadline for comments is 18 October.

In parallel, the European Commission has launched the revision process. In this context, a new report on IED contribution to the circular economy was published this summer. In short, the report concludes that the current IED contribution to circular economy is low. However, this legislation offers a potential to also address waste generation, recycling rates and contribution of recycled materials to raw material demand, and innovation. In addition, the report suggests changes in the IED to promote a better uptake of

emerging techniques by the industry. It also recommends changes to the general content and structure of BREFs, as well as reviewing some specific BREFs.

A Consultation Forum took place on 29 October 2019 in Brussels. It appears that Europump’s proposal was accepted and will move into an Impact assessment and the writing of legal text.

The European Commission published the ‘Best Available Techniques’ (BAT) for Large Combustion Plants (LCP) in August 2017 (Implementing Decision 2017/1442/EU). These BAT conclusions will be used as a reference for Member States to set permit conditions for industrial installations, such as power stations and district heating plants.

Europump proposed the following:

Europump proposal for Pumps and Pumps Systems which is expected to be incorporated.

ENERGY EUROPEAN COMMISSION PROPOSALS FOR AN ECODESIGN FOR ENERGY-USING PRODUCTS (EUP) FRAMEWORK DIRECTIVE – Directive 2005/32/EC Energy related Products (ErP)

EEIc or MEI for all other Pumps in Scope – EEIc threshold value EEIc ≤ 1.00 – MEI threshold value MEI ≥ 0.40

Motors, ENER Lot 30: The Commission announced on 1 October that it adopted the measure. As a next step, the final text will be published in the Official Journal by end of October/early November. The latest versions of the text and Annexes are available through the links. Revised sope is as follows: Energy efficiency requirements for motors shall apply according to the following timetable, these are set out in the ANNEXES to the repealed 640/2009:

At the consultation forum in June 2019 Conrad Brunner (ECOS /NGO’s) tabled a proposal which advised that the circulator Industry could and should meet the following:

from 1 July 2021:

EEI≤0.20 by 2022 going down to EEI≤0.18 by 2025 and a benchmark of EEI≤0.15.

Europump have responded by creating and sending into the commission their position paper rejecting these measures. The European Commission has now launched an impact assessment. Europump is now collecting data from industry to ascertain how big the impact would be on industry to move to the new proposed EEI figures. Water Pumps Lots 28 and 29:

the energy efficiency of three-phase motors with a rated output equal to or above 0,75 kW and equal to or below 1,000 kW, with 2, 4, 6 or 8 poles, which are not Ex eb increased safety motors, shall correspond to at least the IE3 efficiency level set out in Table 2

the energy efficiency of three-phase motors with a rated output equal to or above 0,12 kW and below 0,75 kW, with 2, 4, 6 or 8 poles, which are not Ex eb increased safety motors, shall correspond to at least the IE2 efficiency level set out in Table 1

from 1 July 2023:

The Final report on the Lot 11 water pump review was received in December (433 pages) this is for Regulation (EU) No. 547/2012 on Eco-design for water pumps. Europump submitted their comments early in March and to date have received no further response from the consultants or commission. Original requirements:

Phase 2 would be introduced January 1st 2015 and would be a MEI of 0.4 (40% cut off)

EEIv threshold value of EEIv ≤ 0.50 for Booster Sets – Two Tier Approach: 1st Product information; 2nd Threshold

With regards to part 4 (submersible borehole) the draft has now sent to CEN and will be circulated for comment soon.

Circulators 641/2009

EEIv threshold value of EEIv ≤ 0.62 for Single Stage Pumps

Part 3 for “Booster sets” (Multiple pump assemblies the standard requires a substantial rewrite.

A guideline has now been developed by Europump for Circulators and Water pumps and is available from S Schofield upon request.

Phase 1 by January 1st 2013 and have a MEI of 0.1 (10% cut off)

The Extended Product approach standards (pr EN 17038 Parts 1 & 2) have now been published.

On 11 March 2009, the EcoDesign Regulatory Committee approved new eco-design rules setting efficiency standards for industrial electric motors. Motors will have to meet minimum efficiency standards from 2011. The first phase will be introduced 16th June and motors must comply to IE2 efficiency levels. On January 1st 2015 Motors with a rated output of 7.5 - 375kW must meet either the IE3 efficiency or the IE2 level if fitted with a VSD. Thus cutting the annual energy consumption of these engines by around 135 terawatt hours.

EEIv for – Single Stage Pumps up to 45 kW pump input power – Booster Sets up to 150kW pump input power

By implementing the above industry could offer 30TWhr of electrical savings.

Directive 2009/125/EC

the energy efficiency of Ex eb increased safety motors with a rated output equal to or above 0,12 kW and equal to or below 1,000 kW, with 2, 4, 6 or 8 poles, and single-phase motors with a rated output equal to or above 0,12 kW shall correspond to at least the IE2 efficiency level set out in Table 1

the energy efficiency of three-phase motors which are not brake motors, Ex eb increased safety motors, or other explosion-protected motors, with a rated output equal to or above 75 kW and equal to or below 200 kW, with 2, 4, or 6 poles, shall correspond to at least the IE4 efficiency level set out in Table 3

Europump has now created a guideline which is available from S Schofield.

The bench mark set by the commission is MEI of 0.7 (70% cut-off).

BPMA Activity Highlights 2019/20 Under article 8 of the Directive, enterprises that are non-SME are “subject to an energy audit carried out in an independent and cost-effective manner by qualified and/or accredited experts or implemented and supervised by independent authorities under national legislation by –three years after entry into force of this Directive– and at least every four years from the date of the previous energy audit”.

continued from previous page

The revised energy labelling framework (Regulation was published in the Official Journal on 28 July 2017: it applies from 1 August 2017. The European Commission is still working on finalising the work on the European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL) before it is fully operational. Market Surveillance Authorities are expected to gain access to the database by the end of October – officially they should have had access as from 1 January 2019. Further improvements have been implemented – particularly as regards the system-to-system communication – and bugs fixed. They maintained the principle of empty top classes in new labels and the rescaling mechanism (back to A-G scale), but abolished the differentiation between new and existing labels. In addition, Member States supported the database. However, the amount of information has been considerably reduced (e.g. no test reports) and some provisions have been added to safeguard confidential information.

The UK Government have chosen to introduce the requirements of the Directive through a Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). The ESOS scheme information has been circulated for consultation to all necessary stakeholders. The BPMA responded to this consultation. Previously by being certified to ISO 50001 (energy management systems) you automatically were seen to conform with the EED and indeed article 8. The 2018 new version of ISO 50001 has now strengthened performance evaluation and improvements to the point that if you do not comply you loose certification.

INTERNAL MARKET

Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU

OUTDOOR NOISE DIRECTIVE Directive 2000/14/EC (amended by the Directive 2005/88/EC)

On 25 September 2019 the European Commission published three draft recommendations for Member States on the implementation of the EED. These drafts have already been validated by the Member States and will likely be published in the Official Journal in the coming weeks/days.

The publication of the conclusions of the Outdoor Noise Directive (OND) evaluation were postponed several times in the past months. The Commission’s evaluation report and the accompanying document – so-called “Staff Working Document” – are now expected at the beginning of 2020.

Recommendation (Annex) on transposing the energy savings obligations under the energy efficiency directive These recommendations provide guidance on the calculation methodology for reporting on energy savings as well as policy measures to assist Member States in achieving the required amount of cumulative end-use energy savings.

The next meeting of the EC Noise ‘Expert Group’ – former Working Group – is also postponed to the first quarter of 2020. As a reminder, trade associations need to officially re-apply (see call for applications here) to remain part of this working body.

Recommendation (Annex) on the implementation of the new metering and billing provisions of the energy efficiency directive

The following proposal is taken from the Odelia study: Water Pump units

The recommendations provide extensive guidance on the obligations for metering and submetering under the revised EED, including aspects on the transition to remotely readable devices. The recommendations also outline in detail the costs of access to metering and billing.

P < 25kW Diesel Motor

109 dB

P > 25kW 94 +11lg P dB 99 dB

It is believed that all pumps will require certification to identify noise level.

Recommendation (Annex) on the content of the comprehensive assessment of the potential for efficient heating and cooling under Article 14 of the energy efficiency directive

In addition, the ‘inception impact assessment’ identifies the 3 main objectives for the review:

The recommendations provide guidance for Member States in the context of the upcoming comprehensive assessments for heating and cooling which Member States must submit by 31 December 2020. It contains information on what should be included in these assessments as well as potential measures to raise the level of ambition. There is a dedicated section on waste-heat accounting and voluntary reporting templates for Member States.

1. Reduce noise of outdoor equipment to better protect workers and citizens 2. Update and simplify the regulatory environment 3. Improve innovation and competitiveness. Finally, the European Commission proposes main policy options for the OND review, from implementation improvements or NLF alignment and conversion to a ‘Regulation’ to a full revision. This document highlights possible changes to the scope, noise limit values, conformity assessment procedures, measurement methods, noise label and data collection requirements (database).

In April 2017 BPMA and members of Europump met again with the policy writer Serena PONTOGLIO to see if article 8 could be improved. Whilst Serena fully understand our frustration but stated that member states are currently trying to dilute other articles within the Directive and they did not want to reopen Article 8 through fear that mandated audits could be removed. She said that Tom Bastin (Tom.bastin@decc.gsi.gov.uk) was evaluating ESOS in the UK.

As regards the next step, the European Commission will launch a 12-week public consultation up to the end of April 2018. The European Commission updated its guidelines on the Outdoor Noise Directive (the draft document is available upon request from the Secretariat). The update consists of editorial amendments; no change in the substantial content has been made. The revised guidelines will be published on the Commission website in June 2017.

Article 8, mandated audits has not been reviewed at this stage a meeting has been requested again with the writers of Article 8 to discuss the possibility of modifying the article to include a statement that potential savings within Motor Driven Systems should become actual savings. Discussions have taken place with Pneurop (compressed air) and it now appears that a joint meeting to the EC will take place to discuss options.

As regards the OND review, the European Commission will

launch the impact assessment and evaluation study within the next few weeks. The Commission legislative proposal to review the OND is expected in 2019 at the earliest. Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) (2018/844/EU) Under the new European Commission, sustainability of buildings will increasingly gain more prominence. Building renovations will play a key role in the strategy to decarbonise buildings. To this purpose, under the Green Deal, the Commission will propose a “renovation wave” initiative and measures to accelerate renovations.

At the first Europump PEF meeting which BPMA staff and members attended it was noted that the consultant running the project would only accept type 3 approvals which would include 3rd party inspection. This has been debated at Europump and the goal of any pump related PEF would EXCLUDE 3rd Part inspection.

Furthermore, the Joint Research Center has published the report “Accelerating energy renovation investments in buildings” collecting an overview of existing public and private schemes to promote investments on energy efficiency for buildings.

This project is currently proceeding and conclusions. For a better understanding of the process for developing these rules, testing verification and communication vehicles, the Commission established a Guidance for the implementation of the EU Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and a Guidance for the implementation of the EU Organisation Environmental Footprint.

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive stipulates that all EU states make new buildings ‘nearly zero-energy’ by 2021. The study shows a positive impact of the Energy Performance Certificate under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (Directive 2010/31/EU) on sales and rental prices, indicating that better energy efficiency is rewarded in the market. In one of the first studies of its kind to include an analysis of residential markets in Europe, it was found that higher energy ratings result in substantially higher sales or rental values of buildings on average in most of the Member States that were analysed.

Circular Economy Policy The European Commission published in March a comprehensive report on the implementation of the Circular Economy Action Plan. The report assesses whether the Commission has been able to deliver on the 54 actions that were announced in the 2015 Circular Economy Action Plan. In the publication of the Communication on the European Green Deal, the European Commission announced that it will publish in March 2020 a new Circular Economy Action Plan. This action plan will include a proposal for a “sustainable product policy” and will place special emphasis on specific resource-intensive industries (textiles, construction, electronics and plastics).

Product Environmental footprint On 18 April, the European Parliament adopted the final agreement on a Regulation on disclosures relating to sustainable investments and sustainability risks (2018/0179(COD)). The text sets out a harmonised EU approach to the integration of sustainability risks and opportunities into the procedures of institutional investors. The provisions aim at limiting the risks of greenwashing in investment strategies.

SCIP Database (previously ECHA Waste Database) On 12 November ECHA hosted in Helsinki a workshop for stakeholders to present the developments of the SCIP database (presentations and recording can be found here, meeting notes are available from the secretariat). As a reminder, ECHA published in the autumn the final information requirements and the IUCLID format which will be used to input information to the database. During the meeting, ECHA informed stakeholders that there will be three methods to input information to the database. The first two are manual submissions to the submission portal using IUCLID – offline by downloading the software (which is free) or through an online portal. The third method would be a system-to-system method which would allow bulk uploads to the database. ECHA is currently discussing with IT experts how this could be implemented.

A third European Commission proposal – proposal for a Regulation on the establishment of a framework to facilitate sustainable investment (COM(2018)0353 – has been reviewed by the European Parliament. The proposal aims at establishing a unified EU classification system of sustainable economic activities (‘taxonomy’), improving disclosure requirements relating to sustainable investments and sustainability risks, and creating a new category of benchmarks which will help investors compare the carbon footprint of their investments. The proposal amended by the Environment and of Economic Affairs Committees was adopted in plenary on 28 March. In the Council, the Working Party on Financial services is still examining the text.

ECHA also provided clarity on the question of how it intends to maintain confidential business information. This has been a serious issue of concern for industry actors since the first scenario of the database discussed in 2018. While the database will link different suppliers to keep track of the presence of SVHCs at the component level, these links will not be disclosed. Only information on the article category where the SVHC is present will be communicated. Furthermore, regarding concerns of stakeholders on the granularity of data requested, ECHA defended this approach as it would allow them to aggregate the information in a way useful for waste treatment operators. The recyclers industry FEAD, who was one of the speakers at the session, also defended this approach as it would allow them to remove articles that could taint the entire waste stream before treating the waste.

On 23-25 April 2018, the Commission held the EU Environmental Footprint final conference (video recording available here). The aim of the event was to take stock of the work done by the Commission and stakeholders to develop a methodology to calculate the environmental performance of products along their lifetime (“product environmental footprint, PEF”), in order to harmonise the various existing labels and standards. The Commission established a PEF methodology in 2013 and started a pilot phase in 27 economic sectors covering 2/3 of the EU market. 14 sectors (including metal sheets) completed the pilot phase, and 9 are expected to finalise it by October 2018. The sectors of hot & cold water pipe systems, PV generation, uninterrupted power supplies are included in this last category. Coffee, fish, meat and stationary sectors were not able to complete the pilot.

As a next step, ECHA will release in early 2020 a prototype database which will be refined in the following months with the help of selected stakeholders’ members of the IT user group

ECHA will subsequently release by October an improved prototype of the database which will allow for live-submissions so that duty-holders can begin adapting to the database. The notification duty to submit information to the database officially kicks in by 5 January 2021. Access to the database to waste treatment operators, national authorities and consumers will become available during the first half of 2021.

directives in the Member States since the implementation in 2000. The fitness check will be linked to the review of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (91/271/EEC), for which a Roadmap and public consultation were published in July (the consultation remains open until 19 October). The Commission is currently working on assessing the two cycles of River Basin Management Plans, programmes of measures, and the first cycle of Flood Risk Management Plans. Water Reuse

Water European Innovation Partnership, Water Frame work, Water Reuse & Water treatment

The ENVI Committee in the Parliament published the draft report prepared by Simona Bonafè (S&D, IT) on 3 October. Thus far, the document is only available in Italian, but in summary, the rapporteur proposes:

Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) The fitness check of the Water Framework Directive and the Floods Directive was published on 11 December 2019. The findings indicate that while it has been successful in halting water deterioration and has mobilised investments to water treatment, the progress has been slower than expected. One of the key barriers has been the uneven implementation and monitoring at Member State’s level. Furthermore, it finds that the Directive is flexible enough to address during implementation emerging challenges which are not addressed under the Directive such as microplastics, pharmaceuticals and increasing climate pressure.

a) the need to further define the roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders in the water reuse supply chain beyond plant operators, b) holistic evaluations of risk-management plans by public authorities, c) supports the Commission proposal on minimum quality standards, but advocates including parameters for salmonella, d) encourages that water reuse be not limited to agriculture and is applied to other civil and environmental objectives.

The European Commission published in September a roadmap on the Fitness check of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) (2000/60/EC) and the Floods Directive (2007/60/EC). The fitness check comes in the context of the evaluation clause (Article 19(2) of the WFD, and will cover in addition the WFD ‘daughter directives’: Groundwater Directive (2006/118/EC) and the Environmental Quality Standards Directive (2008/105/EC). The feedback period will remain open until 4 March 2019.

Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive The fitness check of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) was published on 13 December. Preliminary findings indicate that European companies are at the forefront of water treatment innovation. However, the Directive itself could still improve certain elements such as: monitoring, reporting, investment gaps and increased public awareness. Some of the identified key barriers to success are the lack of political will and disconnect between national and local authorities towards implementation. ■

The purpose is to assess the functioning of the directive and possible options for simplifying the legislation and reducing the burden. The Commission will assess the performance of these

KSB Pump Guard – a new monitoring sensor

ABB’s IE5 ultra-premium synchronous reluctance motor and drive package (SynRM) offers up to 50 percent lower energy losses and significantly lower energy consumption compared to IE2 induction motors. IE5 is achieved by combining the performance advantages of permanent magnet technology with the simplicity and service-friendliness of an induction motor, using the innovative ‘magnet-free’ rotor design and dedicated VSD software. SynRM is ideal for upgrading standard induction motors used in pumps, fans, compressors, extruders, mixers, winches and conveyors.

KSB presents Pump Guard, a new pump monitoring system. Pump Guard uses networked vibration and temperature sensors fitted directly to the pump to ensure that changes in operation are detected early without having to be on site. The associated app enables the user to view the current load condition and the load profile of their fixed speed pumps; anytime, anywhere. KSB’s innovation is continually driving the world forward.

The World Market The BPMA has established a relationship with Oxford Economics who now produce the Global Pump Industry Report. We would normally reproduce an extract of that report in this page. However, in view of the current pandemic situation, the publication date has been pushed back. Therefore, in its place, we present a brief look at the world macroeconomic situation.

Comment The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global economy as lockdowns around the world stymie economic activity. In order to fully assess the impact of the pandemic on economic activity and the pump market, publication of the Global Pump report has been delayed till the summer. At the time of writing, Oxford Economics are forecasting a decline of 4.8% in world GDP the steepest drop in living memory. This forecast entails a very weak first half followed by a rebound in H2. The service sector has borne the brunt of the impact, but manufacturing has also been hit. Global manufacturing is expected to remain weak in Q2 before a swift rebound is seen in H2 2020 as the spread of the virus slows and isolation restrictions are eased, leading to the release of

pent-up demand as business confidence increases. However, the exceptionally weak start to this year means that we expect global industrial production to fall by 6.6% in 2020, before rebounding by 7.3% in 2021. The sharp contractions in industrial activity and investment spending this year point to declines in pump consumption for 2020 though a rebound in 2021 is likely as activity returns to normal. Risks to our forecasts are, however, skewed to the downside. The economic impact of the pandemic could be much worse than we have forecast, especially if a resurgence prompts further lockdowns.

7.4 ISO/TC 115/SC 3 Installation and special application The report of secretary has been circulated under the reference ISO/TC 115/N 454. The secretary M Gaydon, attending the meeting, informs about the ongoing projects in the SC 3: •

ISO/DIS 13710 “Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries – Reciprocating positive displacement pumps”

ISO/DIS 21049 “Pumps – Shaft-sealing systems for centrifugal and rotary pumps”

ISO/DIS 13709 “Centrifugal pumps for petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries”

Those three projects are developed under a joint working group TC 115/SC 3-TC 67/SC 6 with ISO/TC 115/SC 3 lead. Those standards follow the API standard. It is needed to revise the ISO standard in order to be similar to the revised version of API standard. Since April 2012, API has stopped the collaboration with ISO and so the projects don’t progress. Approach to this issue, during the ISO/TC 115 plenary meeting in 2015, ISO/TC 115 reminded that a product standard shall stay under the lead of TC product and reminded to the secretary of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 that a meeting of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 should be organized in order to get the opinion of the members on those three projects in

order to deal with them. Following that, the secretary of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 launched three ballots by correspondence in January 2016 in order to decide whether the members wish to confirm, revise or withdraw each of the three standards. The results of these three consultations have been circulated under the references ISO/TC 115 N 267 & 268 & 269. In May 2016, the chairmen and the secretaries of the two committees ISO/TC 67 and ISO/TC 67/SC 6 sent a letter to ISO/TC 115 and ISO/TC 115/SC 3 in order to explain the context of the ISO standards and their wish to not ratify the withdrawal of the three standards. ISO/TC 115/SC 3 commits to study the proposal concept sent by ISO/TC 67 on 16th of May 2016 and to answer to it. ISO/TC 115/SC 3 will investigate in order to organize a meeting of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 in cooperation with the meetings of Hydraulic Institute. If ISO/TC 115/SC 3 approves the continuation of the projects, ISO/TC 115 reminds to all the members that these three projects are product standards that have to remain under the leadership of ISO/TC 115/SC 3.

Composite Containment Shell for Magnetically Driven Pumps ADVERTISEMENT carcinogenic, explosive, toxic), magnetically coupled pumps offer a reliable alternative to the expensive and maintenance intensive double mechanical sealed pumps4. However, if the magnetically driven retrofit pump is lined with a metallic containment shell, the required power to drive the pump is increased due to the eddy current losses. To overcome the eddy current losses (15-25% for large pumps), additional power is needed, not always available in existing buildings, leading to higher service cost. With Xycomp® DLF shells, the same energy requirements as with a mechanically driven pump will be required to drive the impeller.

Composite Containment Shell for Magnetically Driven Pumps By: Dr. Nicolas Weibel, Dr. Samuel Stutz, Daniel Rougnon, Frederic Perrottet, Greene, Tweed & Co. Ten years ago, Greene, Tweed & Co. successfully introduced a carbon-fiber-reinforced PEEK containment shell under the tradename Xycomp® to serve the API 685 sealless pump market1. Today, a new material called Xycomp® DLF (Discontinuous Long Fibers) has been introduced for lower-pressure-rated shells, suitable for the ANSI/ASME market2.

Figure 2: Dry running damage comparison

Top row: Damaged metallic shell and SiC Bearing after a 3-minute dry running test. Bottom row: Undamaged Xycomp® shell and intact SiC Bearing after a 12-minute dry running test.

DLF Pump Shells

To bring Xycomp® and Xycomp® DLF shells to market, many internal and field tests have been performed on a large variety of shell sizes and pressure ratings, demonstrating the high reliability and advantages over other industry standard shells. Such testing includes creep tests up to 204°C for 10,000 hours; statistical shell burst pressures from -196°C to 200°C; fatigue testing up to 36,000 cycles; dry running up to 12 minutes; sand erosion wear; pumped fluid temperature increase as a function of flow rate; thermal shock, fire burn-through tests; and thermal expansion and impact resistance2. ■

This new material offers the same high service temperature of 180°C at a significantly lower price. It was originally developed to serve the Aerospace market, where it was met with great success and market traction3. Creating pump shells from Xycomp® DLF was an obvious match, as it allows eliminating the eddy currents generated by current metallic shells, and therefore offers significantly higher safety in case of an upset condition such as fluid starvation and subsequent dry running. Compared to other non-metallic shells, such as those made from ceramics, Xycomp® DLF is non-fragile and insensitive to thermal shock. Its failure mode is well understood and highly predictable as required for any aerospace application.

Motoring on digitally speaking through accurate predictive maintenance.

Motoring on digitally speaking

However, what is the real game changer is where we can alter behavioural-based consumption.

By: Linda Dingley of Grundfos Pumps Ltd

This involves producing a statistical basis for energy consumption based on real scenarios and then using that to influence the system.

Nowadays it is almost impossible to pick up either an on- or off-line engineering based periodical, without seeing some reference to how digitalization has already, or will soon, have the ability to revolutionise virtually every facet of our lives.

When you combine digital with AI – this then takes the ability to monitor the motor to another level, as with three access sensors and a temperature sensor, this will allow you to ‘learn’ what the pump is doing. If there are changes over a period within the AI operation that will act with known parameters that are learned and then continually honed over a period of time.

There does however, frequently seem to be an hiatus in terms of turning this promise into something more tangible, where true benefits can be readily recognised, documented and then translated into real time business wins.

Amongst other upsides are the facts that these digital systems are easy to install, component parts are cheaper and the AI algorithm can deliver predictive maintenance, offer futureproofing opportunities., as well as optimising the system. Plus, as the information is cloud based it is therefore continually updated. Digitalization offers the chance to visualise what is happening to the motor 24/7, so there is no need to rely on thresholds or to wait for something to ‘go wrong’, which is an intolerable situation for many applications. This is especially true within the process market, where the loss of production through equipment failure can have catastrophic consequences, as well in other operational instances such as data centre cooling and in critical environments such as in a hospital scenario.

Digitalization will deliver more targeted results Bucking this trend is pump motor monitoring - using modern digital techniques – which is one area that is now very much in scope. Pre-digitalization If you look at more recent historic diagnostic capabilities within machine health in the process market for example, where any equipment failure can have catastrophic consequences, you would have seen some ability to monitor a pumps health. However, this was limited to current, vibration and heat output. This information did give some basic data, but achieving these few parameters was arduous and expensive and by the time the information was received and disseminated, it was already out-of-date. Currently speaking So today, as we all face a new and exciting digital future, the pump industry is ready to play their role in this Cloud based future. For example, utilising Cloud based sensor systems means you are now able to monitor, control, quickly react to alarms as well as to optimise all the components in many application based systems. Plus, unlike current building management systems, they facilitate easy-to-understand user interface, via various tools including mobiles apps.

Intelligent control at your fingertips Are we there yet? It is true to say that digitalization within the pump industry is set to continue to be on an upward evolutionary trajectory, especially for those who are already on this road. The benefits from an operational and predictive maintenance perspectives will continue to be felt in many corners of the pump arena as well as the wider commercial world.

Additionally, the built-in control algorithms will make sure that your system is constantly securing the highest amount of uptime, while delivering this with the minimum amount of energy needed.

Having your head in the clouds may have been seen as being a negative in the past, but this is certainly no longer the case. ■

These benefits mean that you can get instant access to information that will help you to monitor your systems and alarms remotely, get access a range of information, optimise the total system and gain the upper hand against downtime

Long-term planning and intelligent stormwater management to prevent future flooding What is stormwater management?

Long-term planning and intelligent stormwater management to prevent future flooding

Stormwater management refers to the way in which the natural flows of water, as well as accompanying sand, chlorides, organic matter and even large objects, are managed during a storm, or rainwater event.

By: Guy Fitzpatrick, GM Industry & Infrastructure, Xylem UK

It includes planning and measurement, and monitoring and control, and well as pumping and treatment.

Large swathes of England and Wales have been battered by storms in recent months, leaving thousands of people dealing with the anguish of flooded homes, businesses and community hubs.

Effective stormwater management plans and systems involve infrastructure such as gutters, conduits and trenches, in addition to detention tanks, pump stations and treatment plants, all of which must be adapted to the environment they have been deployed to protect.

As the clear-up gets underway, attention now is turning to the need to plan for a future in which extreme weather events are fast becoming the norm.

A large number of densely populated towns and cities are situated on or near bodies of water, but urbanisation, which continues to grow, can radically change the flow of water and the space available for stormwater control solutions.

This article answers your questions on building resilient, fit-for-purpose stormwater management systems. Why do we need rethink water management for the modern world? The combination of changing weather patterns, rising population numbers and aging infrastructure present water managers and policy makers with a unique challenge. Traditional solutions are no longer enough to protect homes and lives. The answer must lie in utilising innovative stormwater management practices. But there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, and each strategy must be designed to suit an area’s specific needs. In rural environments, for example, the majority of rainfall infiltrates into the ground, with excess slowly running off into streams or watercourses. In cities and urban spaces, though, it quickly collects and runs off the impenetrable surfaces of streets and paved areas. Villages, towns and cities across the UK and Ireland have been built in the vicinity of lakes and rivers which see rising water levels during storms, or rainfall events. The consequences of the resulting floods, as we have seen this year, can be devastating.

This can create a range of adverse effects, including frequent, severe floods, and a drop in water quality. From an engineering perspective, stormwater assets will need to be considered in a broader context. How can we best protect urban areas? Each case is different, but there are some commonalities. Towns and cities need reliable pumping systems, capable of handling large volumes of water, and cities located in flatland areas, where natural water runoff is slow and cumbersome, must have reliable flood control solutions. This might include flood control stations, which are usually built on shore, either behind or as part of a dyke. Where possible, these stations may incorporate a pump gate. Lifting heads for flood control stations are not particularly high, tending to range from 1m to 5m, but (continued on page 36)

Tu n n e l D e w a t e r i n g In tunneling, pumps are critical items for maintaining suitable working conditions and hitting production targets. If a pump fails, or underperforms, tunneling operations may have to stop, leading to costs and schedule over-runs.

Tunnel Dewatering By: Pablo Garcia, Global Business Development Manager at Sulzer

Therefore, the selection and specification of pumps and associated equipment requires significant attention and specialist input. Ideally, conversations with equipment providers should begin early in the project. During the design phase, a pump supplier will not just be able to make recommendations about the most appropriate type, number and size of pumps for a given application; they may also be able to suggest novel solutions that lead to significant cost savings and performance improvements over the lifecycle of a project.

Keeping the water where you want it in tunnel construction As well as rock and soil, major tunneling projects involve the movement of large volumes of another important element: water. The selection, operation and maintenance of pumps and related equipment can therefore have a significant impact on costs and schedule compliance. This article looks at the range of pumps needed throughout a tunneling project and the support structure needed to keep them operational.

Selection criteria Pump selection is based on a number of parameters. The most fundamental of these are the required flow rate and head. Deeper construction sites inevitably require larger, more sophisticated pumps. A third key factor in construction applications is the quantity of solids in the water. Heavily contaminated water can damage or block a pump of unsuitable design, and manufacturers have developed their ranges to handle particular levels of contamination. Drainage pumps are designed for water with a low solids content while slurry pumps can tolerate mud mixtures with up to 70% solids.

Dewatering installation with Sulzer XJ drainage pump Tunneling technology has developed rapidly over the past few decades delivering shorter travel times and safer journeys through mountainous areas or below more congested areas. Tunnels have the potential to improve transport links, supporting infrastructure and thereby the wider economy. However, where there are tunnels, there is water and its management is a key consideration in any major tunnel construction project. Engineering teams may have to extract significant volumes of water from the construction site in order to stabilize the ground or prevent flooding of the work area.

Dewatering with Sulzer XJ drainage pump The performance requirements for pumps in tunneling applications are varied. While slurry pumps can operate to heads of up to 95 meters, the high-pressure pump designs required for deeper applications are prone to rapid wear if used with heavily contaminated water. This can create the requirement for additional settlement, or other water treatment processes, underground prior to extraction.

Tunnel boring machines and drilling equipment require a reliable supply of cooling water, which must be recovered, extracted and treated after use. In addition, personnel working on site need access to safe, clean water for drinking and sanitation. Each of these applications may involve multiple stages of water management. Water removed from a work site might first be transferred to settling tanks underground, for example, to reduce its solids content before it is pumped to the surface. Once there, it may undergo further treatment stages, either on or off-site to bring it to a condition suitable for safe discharge back into the environment.

In long-term, large-scale dewatering applications, the energy consumed by pumps can comprise a significant part of their total lifecycle costs. High-efficiency pump designs, which may have a higher initial cost due their materials and construction, can often deliver significant savings. The pump supplier should be able to provide comprehensive through-life cost calculations to support their recommendations.

Pumps for all purposes Together, these water management tasks mean tunneling projects require numerous pumps. It is not uncommon for a large project to operate several hundred pumps across the worksite for the duration of construction, ranging from small submersible units to very large components for large volume dewatering applications.

Service and support When selecting a pump supplier for a major project, engineering and procurement teams should consider additional (continued on page 36)

factors beyond the basic technical specifications of the equipment. The supplier should have a broad portfolio of products to meet all the project's needs. Sourcing from fewer vendors simplifies procurement and vendor management activities, as well as the handling of operational issues like the provision of spare parts and technical support. Vendors should have the scale and local presence to fully support the project. While every engineering teams aims to minimize uncertainty before work starts, underground operations are never entirely predictable. If the pumping requirements change significantly during the course of a project, it is important that additional or upgraded equipment is readily available.

Dewatering in Swedish tunnel project Finally, the supplier should have the resources, capabilities and expertise to support its products in a demanding construction environment. The ability to quickly resolve an issue on a pump operating hundreds of meters underground in a remote location can avoid significant delays for a project. Companies with experience in major projects have developed specialized support capabilities, for example providing containerized service facilities that allow tools, equipment and an appropriate inventory of spare parts to be held on site for 24/7 availability. For a cost-effective and reliable dewatering project, it is important to assess the ability of providers to deliver a comprehensive range of products with all the necessary technical support and maintenance inventory. This will reduce project complexity and ensure that every pump is correctly matched to its application for the duration of the construction project. ■ For further info, Email: mailto:eddie.finn@sulzer.com Telephone: +353 53 91 63200

Road drainage systems consist of dewatering, or removing the water from the surface of the road, and drainage, which keeps the surface dry. They might include ditches, under-drains, culverts, collection systems and pump stations.

they must be capable of handling massive flows. Horizontal or vertical axial flow pumps can ensure this capability. Floodwater often contains solids, large amounts of fibrous materials and sediments, placing high demands on stations and pumps. They must be designed to keep branches, leaves, general garbage, dirt, sand, silt, mud and soil out.

What should water managers consider when designing stormwater management strategies? Stormwater control infrastructure is significant, both in terms of scale and expense, and should never be replaced on a whim. The only way for modern villages, towns and cities to guarantee water quality and water resilience, and protect homes and businesses from flooding, is through long-term planning.

How do we protect areas outside of the urban centres? Of course, it’s not all about cities, and managing stormwater outside of urban areas presents its own unique set of challenges. It requires different methods than those used in dense urban environments and not all rural stormwater management projects look the same. Water managers and policy makers must evaluate their project and select solutions that meet its unique parameters and requirements.

It requires an in-depth understanding of every aspect of the individual stormwater control system, from the technical details of complex system interactions, to knowledge of the area’s socio-economic status. Another consideration is whether to purchase or rent the equipment needed to build effective systems.

Ponds can be used to collect run-off from storms, proving a place to store excess water which can be released in a controlled manner that reduces the risk of flooding downstream.

Owning equipment necessitates regular service, parts replacement and technology upgrades over time, whereas renting it gives managers the flexibility to invest precious resources in the areas of most need.

Another consideration is controlling and monitoring groundwater to prevent contamination and significant change in levels. They can also help communities prepare for potentially devastating floods by triggering early warning systems.

Quality rental solutions also effectively outsource compliance processes, giving managers assurances that their systems meet all regulatory standards, and provide on-demand specialist expertise both in terms of day-to-day management, and in the face of unplanned maintenance or breakdowns. ■

Rising or falling groundwater levels can cause negative consequences for infrastructure and the environment, so draining solutions are essential. Systems typically include a number of small laterals that drain water to larger-diameter sub-mains and mains.

Using VSDs to detect and prevent cavitation in pump systems individual shockwave may be relatively small, when they occur in copious amounts over a prolonged period, they can cause erosion to impellers, and damage to the rest of the pump system.

Using VSDs to detect and prevent cavitation in pump systems

Cavitation can also be caused by air getting into pipelines, or backflow where a tank is filled to capacity, yet the pump is still pumping. It is a significant cause of wear, shortening pump lifetime by up to half.

By: Clayton Mead, ABB’s UK Water Industry Manager, Drives This article explains how using intelligent pumping functionality in modern variable speed drives can help to improve pump performance, while proactively preventing damage caused by cavitation.

Causes and symptoms The main cause of cavitation is insufficient Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH), whereby the water pressure on the suction side of the pump is too low. This can be caused by clogged filters, pipe blockages on the suction side, or poor piping design.

If a pump system is suffering persistent failures it is easy to place blame with the supplier. However, one of the most common issues with pump systems is caused not by the pump itself, but by a phenomenon known as cavitation.

There are many symptoms of cavitation, but if pumps are operating with unusually decreased flow or pressure, if there are unexplained vibrations, or if the pipeline sounds like there are small rocks passing through it, then cavitation could well be the cause. Flow and pressure levels may also drift from what you would expect to see according to the pump manufacturer’s specifications, while power consumption may also need to be higher to achieve the same throughput. If cavitation occurs unchecked it will eventually cause seal and bearing failures, and eventually the impeller will show tell-tale signs of erosion and need replacing.

Cavitation is generally bad news for any fluid pumping system. Its effects can have a severely negative impact on the performance of pumps and their components, and in extreme cases can cut their lifespan by as much as half. There are several ways of tackling cavitation, however variable speed drives (VSDs), already used in many pumping applications, can now provide a solution that enables detection and prevention of cavitation without the need for purchase and installation of additional equipment. This helps to save pump users both time and money, while significantly extending pump lifetime. Background The need to ensure maximum pump efficiency and reliability is critical across an almost limitless range of applications and industries. Keeping fluid flow at optimal levels ensures maximum output at minimum cost. Using robust products and components is important, but it is also vital to ensure that pump systems are designed effectively to prevent failures that can lead to downtime. When a pump system is behaving erratically, producing excessive vibration and noise for instance, or if there is a frequent occurrence of mechanical damage, this can be caused by a number of factors. Whilst cavitation is not always the culprit, it is one of the more common causes. When left unchecked it can dramatically reduce the lifetime of impellers and other components. It can also reduce efficiency, and in some applications, for instance dairy production, it can have an adverse effect on product quality.

When cavitation occurs over a prolonged period it can cause damage to pump systems. (Image via Shutterstock)

Cavitation: a potted history The discovery of cavitation can be traced back to naval ships in the late 19th century. HMS Daring, designed to be one of the fastest vessels of her day, failed initial sea trials after an unexplained propeller issue led to insufficient thrust and speed. Cavitation was suspected as a possible cause. However, whilst the phenomenon had been theorised a century earlier, it had not yet been physically observed.

How to prevent it There are several ways to mitigate cavitation. When designing a new pumping system, the Net Positive Suction Head available (NPSHa) must exceed the Net Positive Suction Head required (NPSHr) as specified by the pump manufacturer. NPSHa is the fluid inlet pressure of the system after all losses and other factors have been considered, such as friction losses, velocity, temperature and atmospheric pressure.

Several years later it was determined that Daring’s high propeller speeds had caused vapour bubbles to form on the propeller blades. These bubbles were caused by areas of low pressure forming behind the propeller blade. As the bubbles travelled past the propeller, they encountered areas of high pressure and rapidly imploded. The resulting shockwaves impaired propeller performance, and over time prolonged exposure to collapsing cavitation bubbles would eventually cause catastrophic damage to the propeller blade’s metal surfaces.

Ways to increase the NPSHa include reducing the temperature of the fluid or pump, decreasing the number of elbows and valves in the pipework, reducing the length of pipework, or increasing its diameter. Variable speed drives (VSDs) can also help at the design stage. By providing precision control of the pump motor, they can help to ensure a much smoother flow and reduce stress on system components. This can free up vital NPSHa while reducing heat and energy use. In calculating NPSHa it is always wise to build a margin of safety into the equation to further reduce the chances of cavitation occurring.

Cavitation in pumps As well as ship’s propellers, cavitation can also cause problems in pumping systems. A pump’s impeller creates a vacuum on the suction side/inlet of the pump. If the vacuum gets too large or if the pressure is too low the water starts to boil and transforms from liquid to steam. When these steam bubbles reach areas of high pressure, they collapse back into a to liquid state again, producing a shockwave. While each

How Small Changes Could Lead to Far Bigger Energy Savings far left of the pump curve, a pump’s flowrate is lower than its design specification and could cause higher loading on the impeller causing excessive heat, vibration and seal failure.

How Small Changes Could Lead to Far Bigger Energy Savings

When operating too far right on the performance curve, the pump could cavitate. Cavitation is a process whereby bubbles of vapour formed when a fluid is under low pressure spontaneously collapse as they are transported back into a region of higher pressure. When running at 3000rpm, there are thousands of these mini implosions happening every second and the damage will literally tear through the pump.

By: James Dashwood of Crest Pumps Ltd Pumps are said to account for 10% of the world’s electricity consumption and in the average industrial plant, pumps will account for up to 50% of all energy usage. But it is believed that up to 90% of these pump installations are inefficient. If every pump were the latest efficiency and installed effectively, the energy savings would be the equivalent to powering 1 billion homes.

Good Pumping System design and closely matching the system curve to the pump’s best efficiency point is key to minimizing the Life Cycle Cost. Pipework is a fundamental element and the pipe diameter should be selected so that the whole life costs for the pump and piping system is at a minimum. Reducing the pipe diameter could mean short term cost savings with procurement and installation, but pump energy consumption costs will rise significantly due to the increased friction losses and a requirement for a larger pump and motor.

Europump claim that if the region’s water pumps were looked at in isolation, with a view to reducing their electrical consumption through better product design, savings of 5 terawatt hours could be achieved. But if a ‘whole system’ approach is taken, looking holistically at the application in which the pump operates, then savings of up to 35 terawatt hours could be achieved. In 2016, the world's electricity consumption amounted to approximately 218 terawatt hours, so process improvement and energy savings just on European water pumps could offset 6 weeks’ worth of global energy consumption every year! There is a clear win / win opportunity because increased efficiency savings means reduced costs and increased profitability for the business, whilst also reducing the carbon footprint for the planet.

Significant reductions in energy consumption can also be achieved using a variable speed drive (VSD). If a pump’s performance is not meeting the required duty point, then the traditional method is to throttle a valve so that the desired duty is achieved. But the problem is the pump and motor are still consuming the same amount of power to achieve a different duty. If a VSD was installed in its place, the pump speed and power consumption are reduced in order to meet the required duty. By running the pump at a lower rpm there will also be less wear on the pump and motor bearings.

To understand where these savings can be made, Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis is required. By breaking down all the individual cost elements, simple changes can lead to a far greater improvement in plant efficiency, reduced running costs and a reduced carbon footprint.

Dry running is the biggest cause of pump failure but can be simply prevented. By its very nature, a pump is designed to transfer liquid so if a pump is running dry, it is a waste of money and energy consumption because the pump is operating but the system is not doing anything. Furthermore, this is likely to end in a costly repair bill and unplanned downtime.

When specifying a pump under constrained budgets, high importance is often given to up-front procurement costs, with less attention to the long-term future costs. Remembering that pumps can account for up to 50% of all the energy consumed at an industrial plant, the initial procurement and installation costs are only 17% of the overall lifetime costs, and the initial purchase price of the pump is a mere 10% of the overall lifetime cost. By potentially investing more on the initial cost of the most suitable pump and system design, this initial increase in purchase cost will be dwarfed by the savings in energy consumption over the life of the pump system. In order to minimise energy consumption costs, the pump must operate as close as possible to its best efficiency point (BEP). Away from this point and outside the allowable operating region can result in premature pump failure. To the

A holistic view can lead to exponential cost savings

Using VSDs to detect and prevent cavitation in pump systems continued from page 37

If a centrifugal pump is installed in an application with risks of dry running, a load monitor will provide permanent protection against dry running by constant monitoring of the power consumption of the motor. When the pump runs dry, the motor load decreases which is detected by the load monitor and activates a signal that will stop the motor and send an alarm.

system design can be difficult. One option is to mount a pressure sensor at the inlet and monitor the actual pressure. The sensor feeds back to a PLC or similar which instructs the motor to reduce its speed, preventing high pressure areas from forming. This will likely require additional time and expense in installing and testing new control equipment. There is also a chance that latency may result in a delayed response between the sensor picking up a disturbance and the motor correcting it.

Finally, Best practice advice is to always consult the maintenance manual and follow the recommended service schedule. For example, if a bearing is replaced at the recommended time it would just be the bearing and O-rings that need changing. But if maintenance is not carried out and the bearing is left to wear away; the shaft, thrust ring, and impeller will also likely need replacing. The cost of required parts is now going to be much more expensive, and you risk potentially causing a much larger plant shutdown.

VSDs are already used on many pump applications to control motor speed, and offer the most cost-effective method of detecting and preventing cavitation in existing systems in realtime. Unlike a separate pressure sensor, the VSD is measuring directly from the motor shaft, meaning any potential flow issues can be picked up immediately with zero latency and no need for additional sensors, controllers or interfaces.

With industry 4.0 and smart technology, it is becoming simpler and easier to predict exactly when the best time will be to carry out preventive maintenance. For the ultimate in efficiency and minimal life cycle costs, smart meters will allow system-wide status monitoring, fault detection and the prediction of potential breakdowns.

Modern VSDs increasingly incorporate dedicated anticavitation software, whereby algorithms are used to look for specific patterns in the motor and drive operating data. If identified, the VSD will automatically reduce pump motor speed to prevent cavitation from occurring.

Following these steps will help maximise your pump efficiency for minimal energy consumption, reduce downtime costs through preventative maintenance and ultimately reduce your carbon footprint. ■

Cavitation can be a slow burning issue, and its effects can take some time to become apparent. Unfortunately, this means that by the time it is diagnosed it may be too late to save the pump system or its components. By using the in-built functionality of modern VSDs, pump lifetimes can be significantly increased. ■

Covering all industrial sectors, AESSEAL® operates from 230 locations in 104 countries including 9 manufacturing and 58 repair locations, and has more than 300 customer service representatives who visit industrial plants every day. AESSEAL® aim to exceed all customer expectations in delivery, quality, reliability and service. • Mechanical Seals from AESSEAL® are used in a wide range of pumps and rotating equipment worldwide to prevent liquids and gases escaping into the environment. • Over 7% of annual sales revenue has been reinvested in R&D over several decades, resulting in some of the most advanced sealing technology available today including modular design to ensure the best on-time delivery performance in the industry • AESSEAL® customers save billions of litres of water each year, significantly reducing costs and water waste. • As part of a seal management program, AESSEAL® provide a ‘no-work, no-pay’ warranty and a guaranteed 48-hour shipment of standard products.

ABB offers the world’s widest selection of motors, generators and variable speed drives. • Motors range from 0.06 kW to over 60 MW. They are available in low and medium voltage, in aluminum and cast iron frames, as well as with enclosures for hazardous areas. NEMA motors include general purpose (1/8 to 400 hp), severe duty (1 to 400 hp) and explosion proof (1/4 to 300 hp). A range of motors, rated from 0.37 kW to 1000 kW, are specifically designed to meet the UK’s Water Industry Mechanical and Electrical Specification (WIMES). • Drives range from 0.12 kW to 80 MW. The ABB drive for water and wastewater, rated from 0.37 kW to 500 kW, features built-in control functions including soft pipe filling, pump auto change, redundancy, pump protection, flow calculation, multi-pump control, pump priority, sleep-boost, level control and pump cleaning. The ABB industrial drives, rated from 0.55 kW to 5,600 kW eliminate the need for an external PLC, save energy and reduce downtime. • ABB is also leading the way with the highly energy-efficient synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) and drive package. The package includes a matched motor and drive with dedicated software and offers smooth, efficient process control and optimal use of energy. Today, the SynRM package offers a more efficient, quieter and easy to maintain package than traditional motors and drives; and at the same price point. There are very few reasons why you would avoid the SynRM as the solution to your next pump system installation. • ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for low voltage motors is a low-cost device that picks up data on vibration, temperature and other parameters and uses it to reduce motor downtime by up to 70 percent, extend lifetime by as much as 30 percent and lower energy use by up to 10 percent. • Now the same technology has been adapted for remote monitoring of pumps. The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for pumps monitors pump temperature, vibration and bearing condition – using data analytics – to prevent clogging and other issues in water applications. Using on-board algorithms, the smart sensors relay information about the motor or pump health, via a smartphone and over the internet to a secure server. • ABB can meet requirements of international standards from around the world. All the company’s factories are certified to ISO 14001 for environmental management.

HMD Kontro Sealless Pumps are the pioneers of zero leakage, magnetic drive pumps, having been the first to develop the concept and supplied their first pump in 1947. Sealless pumps are now suited to a wide variety of applications from standard pumps for use in many industrial processes, particularly those in the chemical, pharmaceutical and biochemical sectors through to specialist, engineered pumps for use in the petrochemical, oil and gas industries, including sealless pumps that comply with API 685 and the appropriate elements of API 610. HMD Kontro pumps have recently benefitted from the introduction of ZeroLoss containment shells for reduced power consumption and VapourView monitoring to assist the identification of process upset conditions. Sealless pumps from Sundyne HMD Kontro can now accommodate flow rates of up to 686 m³/hour and differential heads in excess of 240 metres. Sealless pumps are also ideally suited to low and high temperature applications, from -80ºC to +450°C, with system pressures from vacuum to 185 bar. HMD Kontro can also provide pumps of the highest integrity utilising secondary containment options. HMD Kontro have installed thousands of pumps worldwide in many hostile environments. Particular benefits include low maintenance costs (no seals to replace), environmental safety (no leaks) and durability, with many pumps still operating after decades of use. HMD Kontro Sealless Pumps are a division of Sundyne.

Fluid Performance Solutions Limited (FPS) delivers Standard Pump Energy Auditing and Performance Optimization into the Water and Waste Water Industry throughout the UK. FPS conducts Energy Auditing to ISO 14414, an industry standard for independently auditing pumping stations specifically introduced to comply with legislation. Establishing pumping efficiencies and understanding the pipe system gives the best opportunities to optimise the pumping stations and helps to develop recommendations for high maintenance and energy usage stations where costs are significant. Understanding energy usage is sometimes very difficult but with the right equipment and data analysis, energy consumption can be quantified and used to monitor pumping performance. Identifying failures before pumps trip and become damaged beyond repair is critical to reducing unplanned maintenance costs. FPS delivers a cost effective solution to enhance pumping station performance and reduce life cycle costs.

IDEA was originally formed to offer to trade associations a service of collecting and publishing their member information thus promoting themselves and the services they offer. This was done in a variety of formats: • Printed directories • E-Newsletters • Web sites • Electronic catalogues on CD Rom Our aim was always to produce well designed publications which are effective, accurate and excellent value for money. Today, almost all of our work is in printed directories. Over the years, we have worked for organisations as diverse as: • British Footwear Association • Manufacturing Technologies Association • British Materials Handling Federation • National Access & Scaffolding Confederation • British Pump Manufacturers Association • Stone Federation Great Britain • Construction Equipment Association Because of IDEA’s concentration on trade association communication, it is able to offer an effective service which is designed to fulfill the specific requirements of trade associations. IDEA will do everything from the initial conception, obtaining information from member companies, collating it and ensuring that it is presented in the terminology that is common usage within industry. These services are designed to complement those of a trade association; associations may pick what they require to be done and do themselves that which fits within their own organisation. Publications can be financed in a number of different ways and IDEA has considerable experience in such schemes. Above all, IDEA publications are intended to be effective and user friendly, they can be multilingual and are designed with the requirements of the user in mind, not from the basis of using the latest tricks and gimmicks.
